    I wholeheartedly agree with your writeup. In my neverending pursuit to go lighter and smaller, I went ahead and bought this REI tent in July 2016. It’s definitely one of the more fiddlely tents I’ve had to erect but I was amazed at how roomy it was. I’m 6’2″ well over 200 pounds and did not feel cramped at all. I was shocked. Use a Sea to Summit eVent compression sack and man, does it pack down small. My only gripe is purely cosmetic. I wish it weren’t Big Agnes orange. I wish it were the green that MEC uses on their Spark tents – much cheerier. The BA orange is very dreary. Also, a lighter gray on the REI would be preferred. However, this isn’t a deal breaker.

      Glad you like it, Rudy! We actually had a reader suggest recently that blue would be good for tents; that actually makes a lot of sense, since there’s some science that blue walls in bedrooms lead to better sleep. We’ll keep passing the thoughts along to the manufacturers…

    Just bought the tent a month ago and love it. Using on the lost coast trail this weekend! Should have a review of the tent after that.
